Get good grades, and find a subject which youDec 07 2013PreLaw and Legal
Get good grades, and find a subject which you are passionate about which has a context in the greater world. It can be weird. I wrote my admissions essay about how I felt passionate that if America is going to be claimed as a free market capitalist state, I should be able to sell my kidney for slushies. I promise, it sounded really articulate and clever when I was 17.

As long as you load your resume with accomplishmentsJun 18 2013Neuroscience/Cognitive Science
As long as you load your resume with accomplishments and activities, you will probably get in. Honestly, having a lot of money or a legacy pretty much ensures you a spot.

I applied. Visit the campus, talk to some students, sit in on classes, but make sure you can stand living in a small, isolated city for four years.
